. a request before you today is for conditional use authorization for formula retail use for poppa john's pizza. there's been no expansion of the existing tenants space. -- if i could ask for just a moment, please >> sorry for the interruption. it will go ahead and continue. this is a request for a formula retail at 696 center street. the restaurant will offer pizza and other food primarily for delivery and carry out. there is no expansion of the tenet space with respect to the form -- the retail uses, we ask the planning commission considers several criteria including the existing concentration of formula retail usage in the area, the availability of other similar business types and a vacancy rates in that district. staff performed a survey within five blocks of the project site and found there are 15 existing an approved formula retail uses , 15 establishments that sell pizza, including two formula retail restaurants and 14 vacant storefronts. it should be noted within six blocks of the site, there are 25 pizza restaurants. this area is intensely developed and highly residential. ther
interest. ben shrugged. who knows. i would be with us in the second. i am serious. don't you feel abandoned. it's a three way honey, i don't think two people can feel abandoned. he might be late. i looked at the clock again. 25 minutes. only hustlers can get away with that. he's not a hustler? ben turned and looked at me. you think i bought us a hustler? how pathettic tic do you think we are? >> i sort of felt like he targeted us. i didn't get that sense. may be i'm wrong. ben smiled. you are disappointed. no , i said, no just annoyed. he pulled down the waist band. i don't need a mercy suck. he looked up. mercy suck. whatever. undeterred ben got down to business. mercy i said, there was when mr. johnson knocked on the door. you may have figured it out by now. to us, he was still the great dark man. a mythical man or object to desire. it was probably why we jumped to attention. jesus. tucking the incriminating evidence. wait. let this go down first. >> why? i don't know. seems rude. ben widened his eyes at me. did you learn that from miss manners. i hid myself. this probably made me look
of the building and go to the elevator. we used to be able to pull into the back alley. it is being contested and just open the door and there is a ramp to go to the elevator. it was a lot. for a person to deal with someone who is disabled as well as all the rest of parts of our life, it is a pain. if robert has trouble walking which his back has caused a lot of problems and walking is one of them, it is much better for him to go through the alley and there is -- the door that comes into the building there goes into the basement through a ramp. it is a sloping ramp. that would be the best way for him to go into the building if it -- if he comes to the point where he needs a wheelchair. we're sympathetic that there is a lot of problems. nobody is arguing about that. in the process of this, somehow, some other kid is set -- other considerations, i think we are being overlooked. either the gate should be removed or there should be access with keys to the gate and the gate should be opened. >> have you requested a key? >> no. we have requested a key and said -- they said they will give us a key.
ten years when the u.s. first after september 11th invaded afghanistan. i don't know, some of you are too young to remember, but others of us might remember looking at our tv screens and seeing the pictures of these very fancy, new weapons that we had. this idea that we know had these precision weapons that would only target the people that we wanted to get and would not result in collateral damage. and it was almost a way to say to people, calmed down, don't be worried. we will be killing innocent people. so, i was worried because i don't have as sense that the latest and greatest new weapon is going to protect innocent people and went to afghanistan three weeks after the invasion with several other colleagues. it was before we even got into afghanistan on the border of pakistan that we found already people who would be considered collateral damage. the first young woman i met is somebody who sticks with me because she looked like my daughter. she was 13 years old. my daughter at that time was 13 years old. i felt an affinity with her and asked her if i could learn about her stor
. in minnesota, they use september elections in odd years. it seems to me including those is comparing apples to apples. in terms of the state primary, all i was suggesting was using the most recent 2012 data because you are already using state primary. you already have said in the report. it stopped at 2010. including 2012, it would make sense. it is the most recent data. you already have a category for statewide primaries. you include the u.s. senate, the governor, and those races. >> we use the primary only as an example. there is nowhere else i use the primary information in our report for -- i never looked out over votes in primaries at all. it just looks at primary's in general about 65% of winner- take-all. i could not use september's election if i wanted to keep that formats until i had november's numbers. >> if you think about it with a plurality election, if you compare everyone who votes for the top two, their ballots counted in the final round. everyone else who did not voted for those top two, it is similar to where their ballots has exhausted. it is this ironic thing that everyo
comments, we did not appreciate them, and if you see the wrong thing to us, we will attack you. our response is ok, the ordinance clearly says members are free to express their opinions, to respond, and i want to thank you for the responses i have gone although i may have not agreed with each one. i respect the fact there were given and it is that give-and- take that really encourages people to participate in government. i think one of the things that i see separately is the fact that many people to not go to boards and commissions because they really do not feel that the board and commissions care about what they say. i have heard them do it. one time in a police commission meeting, they went to item no. 2 and covered a and b and went into closed session for four hours, it made everyone leave the chamber. there were 15 people that came to talk about item number two. after the four hours, they came back, covered agenda item 2c, and asked for public comment and i was the only one that was left and i said that was not right. i was told by the vice- president, you cannot talk about tha
cupcakes. that's it for us. thanks for watching us. bill will be back on monday. but please, remember that the blueberry spin stops right here because we are always looking out for you. >> i am told we all should vote. that overpopulation is what makes poor people poor. >> higher education is the single most important investment. >> i'm, you should go to college. >> i am so upset. >> politicians say olympic clothing must be made in america. people think they know why people free-load. >> it would be a shame to waste those shrimp. >> but what you think you know, often is not so. >> my hand is not catching fire. >> myth and truth -- that's our show tonight. and now, john stossel. what you think you know may not be so. how can that be? we know a lot. we go to school, read, watch tv, learn from parent, friends. why would what we know not be so? because our instincts are often wrong. took me too long to learn that. when i was a consumer reporter, i thought government regulation was the solution to consumers being ripped off -- wrong. regulation hurt consumers more. i thought ame
planes and wearing u.s.-designed footwear and this makes us all richer. >> it absolutely does. >> people don't get that. >> no, they don't. one could argue that the american uniforms were not manufactured in china, they were grown in a soy bean field in iowa. something we export to china is soy beans because we are incredibly productive in the soy bean market, we get more uniforms at lower prices. the chinese get more soy beans and they get higher wage, we get lower prices. everybody wins. >> if we insisted that everything be made in america, we would be poor? >> absolutely. >> a couple of other methods. over population, i was told that's why asia's poor and africa's poor. it's a big problem. >> yeah, the problem is not that there are too many people. the problem is that they don't have free markets itch they have bad governments that take their resources. one thing that opened my brain about it was to look at some of the population data. i heard that nigeria's poor because of over population, pakistan's poor because of over population. and look, nigeria, pakistan, they have 174 people p
those parties. if it was found to not be a legal use, the authorization would exist, but it would not be useful. you cannot weigh in on whether that is illegal use are not. that is a private matter between the parties. commissioner borden: for that purpose, it does not make as much sense for us to continue this case out, but i think we could discuss whether or not there are appropriate conditions about requiring the white zone and not by telling, or requiring a crossing guard. some of the issues that people address -- it is obviously a little bit different with a preschool, because those kids are not generating trash and roaming the neighborhood. their parents are may be getting out of the card temporarily to bring them to the car, or they are being brought directly to the car. presumably, it is not all day long. traffic conditions seem like much more of an issue for other situations. we would support a condition related to requiring a crossing guard, and a morning or evening pick up, as well as asking to get the wide zone, so parents can call up temporarily. i would move that we
for working very closely with us. for carmen, who was assigned by board president to lead the effort again this year on the budget. and for the other members of the board of supervisors that have engaged directly with us. supervisors avalos, kim, elsbernd, cohen. and the department heads that worked very hard with us. i see of they cisneros, who the police chief and our fire chief. barbara garcia and trent have worked extremely closely with us because of the tremendous pressure that we feel at the state level and the national of bochum, trying to get a really good conversation about how we can make sure that the community based organizations that provide invaluable service to us are taken care of and working in collaboration with us. hall of the a jar work that she does with all of us. i want to thank her for her tremendous leadership. again, i can say about about my good friend, someone who i got the chance to work with for many years. you have taken up so many complicated challenges this year, we're going to keep you busy. thank you for your wonderful team. our new city administrator tha
not request us to have restricted food items, we chose to do so. but, to be clear, the reason we have those trucks is because of the wanted to work with them in another location, we would have to have them on our permit. it is a very simple process. so, when we update our permit, at the multiple permit is new. we are the first individual group to have this permit that allows us to look at multiple on the same permit. when we update those trucks, we do not receive a revised permit that lists all of our trucks that are part of our permit. we have gone through this process and updated our vendors. in the pellet's brief, they mentioned that we placed a truck at front. there is a process for dpw handling these issues. they could have called dpw and they could have sent somebody to verify and we could have been held in violation. we, without anybody knowing, we placed somebody down there as a mistake. what we did was caught the mistake without anybody mentioning anything to us and two days later, that that truck was added in. they have the proper documentation. that is why there was confusion. we
hub. the use of heavy weapons there has already taken its toll. >> the fight for control of aleppo has raged for nearly a week, and both sides are preparing for what could be a decisive battle. still, demonstrators defied the danger, filling the streets to voice their hatred of the assad regime and to show their increasing disregard for the powers that be. opposition forces have reportedly seized a number of districts in the city. the rebel flag now flies over a government building, and rebel forces are preparing themselves for the battle to come. the assad regime is reportedly ready in an offensive. the u.s. state department is voicing concern, fearing an all- out massacre may be imminent. >> this is another desperate attempt by a regime that is going down to try to maintain control, and we are greatly concerned about what they are capable of in aleppo. >> washington says its intelligence indicates the syrian government is using warplanes and attack helicopters to target rebel positions in aleppo. the international red cross has pulled many of its emergency personnel out of the region
us, we would not be able to do what we do. i want to say thank you to the folks that make this happen. overall, there was a lot going on this year and many issues are coming out is still being discussed. our goal was to make sure that the budget was the least of everyone's worried. it was a low-key drama-free budget. we had a unanimous vote to pass the budget and with that, i think we really have put together a consensus budget. in addition to the key areas where we made investments in supporting small businesses and focusing on the economy, invest in opportunities to train individuals for the work force, who think the budget is reflective of a two-year budget. this is the first time the city is embarking on budgeting over two years and we are looking at the consequences of our decisions today and what that means for the future. i think that is a very important step for the city, having a solid footing going forward. i am happy to see where the reserve levels are going to go. always when we have this conversation and we say what you want in the budget, he never asks for a
made those garments. they will fly them on american planes and wear u.s. designed footwear and this makes us richer? >> it does. people don't get that. one could argue that the american uniforms were not manufactured in china but they were grown in a soy bean field in iowa, something we export to china. we get more uniforms at lower prices. the chinese get more soy beans at lower prices. they get lower prices and everybod wins. >> if we followed people we would be poor. >> problem is not there are too many people. the probe is for the most part they don't have free markets. they have bad governments. >> john: i think one thing that opened my brain about it. look at some of the population data. i heard that nigeria is poor because of overpopulation, pakistan is poor because of overpopulation. look, they have 174 people per square mile, 225 per people per square mile. that is half of what the netherlands has and holland is rich. they are really rich? >> people's ultimate resource is the mind. one thing that is interesting. >> john: more people is more brains? >> absolutely. m
. for many of my residence, you cross the street and there you are it ocean beach. for us, what have bishop -- happens at ocean beach is very much a part of what happens to our own homes and neighborhoods. my interest first started to get peeved because of all the issues we had here. not only the erosion issues, but if you drive along the highway, the road closures that happens, among other things. as a city leader, one of the things we started to recognize is that the real erosion issues were starting to threaten a things like our server infrastructure, among other critical pieces of san francisco's in for a stretcher. so it became pressing for us to pull together a collaboration of individuals to be here. i wanted to speak about how thrilled i am that is a master plan has been completed. we have a long and a vicious road ahead of us for many of the improvements that are envisioned in the plan to go forward. without everybody who is here, we would be missing key components to make this something that could come to reality. not only our city leaders, the mayor, my colleague eric mar that is
. let's start with the made in america frenzy. harry reid and others are upset that the u.s. olympic ka committee bought uniforms made in china. >> i think they should take all the uniforms and put them in a pile and burn them and start over again. >> yes people are desperate for jobs. isn't it outrage when americans need jobs and we buy uniforms from overseas? it took me on long time to understand the concept. let's bring in some help. art carden. not worry about sending work to other countries? >> fundamental thing about trade it makes everybody better off. it benefits countries and both parties to engage in trade. >> john: those uniforms could have been made by american workers? >> the problems in the united states we are so much better at different things, making garments is what economists call comparative advantage. >> john: i wouldn't call it a problem, it's an advantage, those jobs are factory jobs that are not so pleasant. now even though those clothes are not made in america, they are sold here and shipped in trucks in america and built on machines made by americans although t
industry. in this area, the u.s. has done a long time service. at the same time, the chinese want to prepare -- entrepreneurs are interested in making investments in the united states so there are more and more chinese companies coming to the united states and investments. according to chinese statistics, for the last 18 months, the chinese investment in the united states grew by 18-40% -- by 14%. it is up to $6 billion. the investment is still a small figure. it is growing very fast. today, our common interests have expanded and interdependence has been deepened. now, as the impact of the financial crisis still lingers, both china and the united states have committed to transforming their economic growth. their economic growth models by increasing input in some new areas like new energy, high- tech, high end manufacturing, i.t., bioscience, etc. these could translate into new corporation -- cooperation opportunities. the u.s. as you know is implementing its export initiatives and select u.s. programs while the chinese government is implementing its plan. one of the main contents
